The Browns: The Three Bells


Ok, it’s corny, but I love it, particularly the Edith Piaf original.

It was written in 1940 in French as Les Trois Cloches by Jean Villard, known as Gilles. It was recorded in 1946 by the immortal Piaf and Les Compagnons de la Chanson.

Here is a live performance though the sync seems odd.

The Browns recorded it 1959 with English lyrics by Bert Reisfeld as The Three Bells.

It topped the US chart and reached No 6 in Britain.

Here is a 1965 live performance.
